Hola!

Where to begin....

My first aquarium was a 20 gallon freshwater that my brother and I bought when I was about 12 or so. That was a LONG time ago. We had that one setup for many years until we moved and never set it up again. Then it got accidentally sold in a garage sale for $1. Someone got a deal.

Later on I setup a 55 gallon freshwater which was a lot of fun until we moved again and sold it.

Currently I have a 75 gallon with turtles in it but I will be converting that to freshwater fish.

That's where I am now. deciding what I want to do.

Welcome to AA! If you leave your options too wide open you'll be in the middle of a friendly trying to convince you between going planted FW and SW.

SW is too expensive right now and it seems to take more time.

It's a FW community tank for me. Thinking about using an Aquaterra background. Not sure about that yet because they are expensive (for my meager budget at least)

Welcome to AA! A FW planted tank can be just as beautiful as a SW tank with less $$ involved.

A fellow old head - great - I finally may have somebody who will understand the euphemisms I use. My last take was over 28 years ago - my son always asks if they had glass back then. Well welcome to a great site to get information, knowledge and loads of ideas.


By the way I would listen to zags, freshwater tanks are so much more beautiful ......... and lots cheaper.

Welcome to AA

Listen to Mike. Take another look at the SW side. You know you really want to. Besides,
Resistance is futile!
